Spider-Man: Homecoming writer Jonathan Goldstein has revealed that the film original had more educational videos featuring Captain America and the Avengers.
The current state of the Spider-Man franchise has been a bit on the bizarre side. It originally seemed like Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films were set to remain apart from whatever else Sony was doing with the characters they still held the rights to. Then Michael Keaton’s Vulture appeared in the first trailer for Morbius and threw all that for a loop. But before that happened the franchise seemed to content to contain supporting roles and cameos from characters like Captain America and Iron Man.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming Chris Evans’ Captain America appeared in a limited capacity. Specifically, the character appeared in an educational video that was being shown to Peter Parker’s gym class, in a detention video, and in an after-credits clip. But apparently, the film was originally supposed to have even more of these.
Earlier this week a quarantine watch party for Spider-Man: Homecoming was hosted by Comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis. The party was joined by screenwriter Jonathan Goldstein who revealed that the script had about five more of these Captain America-style educational videos in them:
